Aesthetically and even for ease of use since remembering all the checks isn't always easy or straight forward, it would be nice to have.... but certainly not critical.
    I can only see one focus spell (searching the core rules for "bonus to all"), but this is a good idea. Logged as RS2.038.

    Thanks.

    There are creature abilities that do it... as I just finished Creature 10s, having come across another one, it was a reminder. I am not entirely how common (or rare in this case) they are in the CRB.

    Is there a way to add the action icons through hotkey?

    Not through a hotkey.

    But there are a few different keywords that the ruleset looks for - see this post (and a few following): https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post448487

    Ahhh - those tricks do not work to setup your own actions or spells - I put [[A]] Rage in the spell name and it doesn't do anything. This is really not a critical issue - but a 'would be nice' type of thing.

    They should work. You don't put the action in the name, you put it in the "Casting" field - exactly where the action icon appears in the spell entries in the core rulebook. Then lock/unlock or close/open the spell and the [[A]] will be replaced with the icon. Open spells from the Core Rules module and you'll see where the icons appear.

    HA! Ok that did work thank you - I just had to know the right place to put the darn thing.

    Yeah, not every field does it - but I've tried to make sense with which fields have it. In the future I may have a little icon, or maybe just a * next to a field name if it supports icon replacement.

    You can always use ALT-codes (hold down alt, type the code on the keypad - it has to be a keypad, and then release ALT) and the character will be added, even in fields that don't do the character conversion (and that use the standard font). Unfortunately, in order to not remove any other normally used characters, I've had to use the following codes - so they're not easy to remember:

    1. 0129 - Free action
    2. 0141 - One action
    3. 0143 - 2 actions
    4. 0144 - three actions
    5. 0157 - reaction

    You must use all four digits (include the preceding 0).

    See, now I'm wondering who uses #0142 lower case l with a stroke, but doesn't need #0141 Upper case L with a stroke.

    I'm asking because it seems that 0141 - 1 Action; 0142 - 2 actions; & 0143 - 3 actions would have been slightly more mnemonic.

    That's not the same code table that FG uses.

    For what FG uses, see the "Extended ACII code" table here: https://www.ascii-code.com/ W're using pretty much the 5 codes that aren't assigned.

    I know it's not easy to remember - hence why the ruleset will convert more memorable action text into the code (for appropriate fields).
